Understanding Millennials -- Feb. 28 Lunch Program

11:30am-1:30pm, Corporate College East 4400 Richmond Road Warrensville Heights, OH 44128

Millennials are not some vast unsolvable mystery. According to a report from the U.S. Census Bureau, they earn $2,000 less than their parents did at a comparable age, they are more likely to live in poverty, and they are more likely to live at home. But, Millennials are tired of getting a bad rap. The Millennial generation are sick of being called lazy, entitled or high maintenance simply because they played on T-ball teams in which everyone got a trophy and grew up drenched in a constant stream of praise from adults. That was years ago. Now, they’re starting families — or starting to think about it — in the face of an economy that hasn’t grown robustly in more than a decade. So what do we do as professionals with a large cohort of Millennials in the workplace? Read more on the Upcoming Events page.

Understanding Millennials - February 28, 2017

Corporate College East 4400 Richmond Road Warrensville Heights, OH 44128

Millennials are not some vast unsolvable mystery. According to a report from the U.S. Census Bureau (PDF), they earn $2,000 less than their parents did at a comparable age, they are more likely to live in poverty, and they are more likely to live at home. But, Millennials are tired of getting a bad rap. The Millennial generation are sick of being called lazy, entitled or high maintenance simply because they played on T-ball teams in which everyone got a trophy and grew up drenched in a constant stream of praise from adults. That was years ago. Now, they’re starting families — or starting to think about it — in the face of an economy that hasn’t grown robustly in more than a decade. 

Yes, they continue to struggle to move up the corporate ladder while older workers delay retirement and hold tight to the reins of power. They want to be recognized for their contribution to their employers, despite measly starting salaries and zero job security. They yearn to work for managers who treat them fairly and respectfully, to form positive connections with colleagues and feel proud of what they do and its impact on the world.

Join Northeast Ohio IABC on February 28, 2017 as we host Sonya Weiland and Amy Shanon who will share their insight about how Millennials will be a key part of our future employee population. You learn how to flex your  leadership style to meet the Millennials’ expectations. Our objectives include:

  • Discover the perceived “Gap” between Millennials and their Employers
  • Identify, understand, and  discuss ways to align with Millennials’ values
  • Understand the demands Millennials have of employers
  • Recognize the use of social media by Millennials as a means of communication and disseminating information
  • Create strategies to support Millennials’ ambitions and professional development
